More about the bands:
LaHi (and the diks)
A sparkly fusion of jazz, invigorated with a funky groove to get you moving, you will be captivated by the sheer presence of front person LaHi; her angelic voice, dynamic melodies, and an aura that demands attention even during the quietest of songs.
Her band “the diks” provide an ever-moving backbone that; with slapping baselines and intoxicating rhythms, provide electrifying bangers for any occasion.
Ambient Book Club
Since bursting onto the scene in 2019, Ambient Book Club have been captivating audiences with their mysterious soundscapes and visceral shows. Through an array of colourful guitars and vibrant rhythms, the band bring a modern take to psychedelic rock.
The band released their debut song ‘Road to Nowhere’ in January 2020 – a technicolour track that pays homage to classic psychedelia and invokes the nostalgia of warm summer nights. Since releasing the track, the band have been building a cult following and cutting their teeth on the Sydney club circuit.
Ambient Book Club’s sophomore release, Dilemma, demonstrates the band exploring new textures and finding new highs through experimentation. The 5-minute track seamlessly blends genres, sounds, and imagery to present a hauntingly surreal spin on their psychedelic sound. To kick off the new release and restart touring, the band played a sold-out headline show at The Factory theatre in Sydney. Now they are heading to Canberra!
Delivering a dynamic show, Chins’ diverse set lists range from Light Indie Rock through to Hard Core Punk – with a twist of grunge.
Interspersed with covers from bands like “The Cure” and “Skeggs”, Chins have an array of originals – their energetic stage presence has resulted in the Chins’ shows being described by The Basement as “contagious!”
Canberras’ own – who are CHINS?
Madie Cook – Front-Person and Lead Vox
Ryder Boyle – Guitar & Backing Vox (founder, sometimes lead Vox, Drums or Bass)
James Rowntree – Guitar & Backing Vox (sometimes Lead Vox, Bass or Keys)
